It’s funny, quirky, and the main character is totally someone that I could relate to on many levels. Even if she is only 17 and pregnant.
Gory, yes. But a must see! Very amusing and choc-full of your favorite actors. Make sure you’re in the mood for singing.
I don’t usually make Oscar predictions, but I would like to call this film for best picture. It was absolutely beautiful, poignant, and probably the most devastating movie I’ve seen in a long time. Want proof? Kevin actually AGREES with me on this one. As I type this post a full 24 hours AFTER seeing the movie, I’m still filled with despair and can hardly wait to read the book (though I know I’m asking for additional heartache).
Last King of Scotland
Brutal, but definitely worth it. Forrest Whittaker is a beast.
I’m intending to be on a big film kick…my “Winter Wonderland of Film” Series perhaps? The weather is much too cold and depressing, and television is losing its appeal with the writers strike, more reality TV than ever, and about 10 new shows starting that are all about bitchy, stylish women living in the city and trying to make sense of their lives. Not exactly something I can relate to.
Anyways, life continues on. Next up on the Netflix Que, The History Boys. I’ll keep you posted.
